Licenses for Standard and Professional editions on the same PC

Last Updated:05/17/2017

Question:

Is it possible to have licenses for Standard and Professional editions on the same PC?

Answer:

Yes, it is possible. How to operate in such situations is described below.

[Ordinary licenses]

Use a license for the Professional edition if you are using its additional features. Use either the license to the Standard or Professional edition if you are not using those features.

[Floating licenses]

Use the license for the Professional edition if you are using its additional features. If no licenses are available on the license server, use the evaluation edition for building. Use the license for the Standard edition if you are not using the additional features of the Professional edition.
If there is no available license for the Standard edition on the license server, there are two possible situations.

  1. If the server options allow the use of a Professional license Use a license for the Professional edition if no licenses for the Standard edition are available. If no licenses for the Professional edition are available either, use the evaluation edition for building.
  2. If the server options do not allow the use of a Professional license Even if there is an available license of Professional edition on the license server you will not be able to use it, so use the evaluation edition for building.
